How to serve Oxtail soup?

This oxtail soup recipe used few spices that makes this oxtail tail soup an Asian dish.

Oxtail soup is best served with either noodles or rice.

But I chose glass noodles instead, because I kind of like the chewy texture of the glass noodles with the soup.

And glass noodles is bland, therefore able to soak up the taste of the oxtail soup and its condiment.

This recipe is based on the famous Taiwanese glass noodle with beef soup.

Kids are back to school this week.
And as for my son, this term will be his last term, to be in the school/class room environment.

Last night, we were talking over supper... about his plan, his future, which University, what course, where he intends to go to and so forth. We touched on the topic on which part of Australia that they would likely end up studying hence living. Suddenly, E said, If I were to leave WA and live in the Eastern States, I'd miss my Alarm Clock! with her arm stretching out to pat my back...looking at me with her cheeky smile.

Yes, I would definitely miss her, miss her annoying morning habit! with my every 10 minutes listening, checking whether she is out of bed, getting ready. Screaming at the top of my lungs "Its time to go", at the garage door, ready to leave, with her replying, 'I am coming' and yet, she is no where to be seen! Still no sign of her in the next 5 minutes... but 'I am coming' could be heard coming from somewhere in the house.

 She gets my adrenalin pumping every morning, I do not need caffeine for that extra boost. We are totally opposite! I must be either early or on time... whereby the word : Time is erased from her vocabulary! I am going to miss my son too, if he decided to further his studies to the Eastern States... will miss cooking this bowl of noodles with lots and lots of beef, beef rendang and many more... this boy loves his red meat.
